L-lactate dehydrogenase B chain, LDH-B, LDH heart subunit, LDH-H, Ldh-2, Ldh2, Ldhb.
Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme(EC18.104.22.168) present in a wide variety of organisms, including plants and animals.
A tetrameric enzyme that catalyses the interconversion of pyruvateand lactate with concomitant interconversion of NADH and NAD+. At high concentrations of pyruvate, the enzyme exhibits feedback inhibition and the rate of conversion of pyruvate to lactate is decreased. In vertebrates, genes for three different subunits (LDH-A, LDH-B and LDH-C) exist.
LDHB Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 357 amino acids (1-334 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 39kDa.
LDHB is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
LDHB protein solution (1mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl (pH8.0), 1mM DTT and 10% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage, it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Specific activity is > 150 units/mg, in which one unit will 1.0 umole of pyruvate to L-lactate and beta-NAD per minute at pH 7.5.
